2 Samuel 1:10 (NLT) — 10 “So I killed him,” the Amalekite told David, “for I knew he couldn’t live. Then I took his crown and his armband, and I have brought them here to you, my lord.”

Here we see the final result of Saul’s continual disobedience. He refused to listen to the Lord and kill all of the Amalekites when he had the chance. In fact he said he did when he didn’t. From then on he lived a life of disobedience and in the end it killed him. Ironically it was an Amalekite. It reminds me of this verse in Leviticus:

Numbers 32:23 (NLT) — 23 But if you fail to keep your word, then you will have sinned against the Lord, and you may be sure that your sin will find you out.

Sin is hunter and it will hunt those who continue in sin. Warn your children and grandchildren with these words.

As Pastor Jon Courson says, “There are no excuses for sin, only a cure. And the cure is repentance. We aren’t to explore, explain, or excuse sin. We’re simply to acknowledge, confess, repent, and go our way free.”

John 8:10–11 (NLT) — 10 Then Jesus stood up again and said to the woman, “Where are your accusers? Didn’t even one of them condemn you?” 11 “No, Lord,” she said. And Jesus said, “Neither do I. Go and sin no more.”

Be Inspired Hilltop!



  1. Thank you Pastor Dan. It’s been a good week of teaching. Saying sin is a hunter really struck me. Come September there are many hunters who drive by ever so slowly because of the federal land across the road. Sometimes they stop and park for awhile to wait and watch. Then they drive a little further and do the same thing. So patient are they hoping to catch a glimpse of their prey and make a plan of attack. It may be at that moment, the next day or in a week but it will happen. Yes, sin is a hunter…and sad to say a very successful one if you don’t keep watch. Matt 26:41
